For example, such models can also be viewed as a special application of multilevel models in which occasions of measurement are nested within persons, where the Level 1 model is used to specify the population function of change, that is, time in study, chronological age, time to event (Bryk & Raudenbush, 1992; Goldstein, 1995; Hox, 2000, 2002). The LC model is statistically equivalent to a random coefficients model for change over time when time values are discrete across occasions for all or most individuals.
